Availability: Ready to download

According to the canonical Gospels, Jesus emerged alive from Joseph’s tomb after a brutal and torturous death. However, none of them actually describes what that may have looked like, or what may have been happening in the spiritual realm between his death and resurrection. Where the other Gospels are silent, another claims to fill in the gaps. In the winter of 1886-87, F According to the canonical Gospels, Jesus emerged alive from Joseph’s tomb after a brutal and torturous death. However, none of them actually describes what that may have looked like, or what may have been happening in the spiritual realm between his death and resurrection. Where the other Gospels are silent, another claims to fill in the gaps. In the winter of 1886-87, French archaeologists found a Greek copy of the Gospel of Peter in Egypt. Originally written in Syria late in the second century, this Gospel narrates shocking and spectacular events never before imagined. But why? And what does it all mean?

    Mark M. Mattison’s The Gospel of Peter: Revisiting Jesus’ Death and Resurrection is an elucidating analysis of an extra-canonical Gospel of the second century C.E., a period that is still shrouded in relative darkness for historians and scholars of early Christianity. Having written commentaries on other extra-canonical Gospels (the Gospels of Judas, of Mary, of Philip, of Thomas, and of Q), Mattison demonstrates a keen awareness of historical context, clarifying at several key points the relati Mark M. Mattison’s The Gospel of Peter: Revisiting Jesus’ Death and Resurrection is an elucidating analysis of an extra-canonical Gospel of the second century C.E., a period that is still shrouded in relative darkness for historians and scholars of early Christianity. Having written commentaries on other extra-canonical Gospels (the Gospels of Judas, of Mary, of Philip, of Thomas, and of Q), Mattison demonstrates a keen awareness of historical context, clarifying at several key points the relationship of the Gospel of Peter to the New Testament Gospels. He argues persuasively for a probable second-century dating of the Gospel of Peter in view of its portrayal of a pre-Nicene Jesus, whose divinity—however it may have been understood—has not as yet overshadowed and subordinated his humanity, even a Jesus who has not yet been dehumanized by the Docetic tendencies—portraying the Christ as a god-like being who only appeared to be human—that seem to have increasingly penetrated Christian theology as the second century wore on. The Gospel of Peter is a fragment, narrating events immediately before, during and after the crucifixion of Jesus, that shows, as Mattison points out, a dependence on the New Testament Gospels while, at the same time, adding some significant details of its own, especially regarding an immediate post-resurrection appearance of Jesus to non-disciples. In consideration of the Gospel of Peter’s focus on Jesus’ crucifixion, the final chapter is an expert summary of the three general theories of the atonement—the Anselmian, or objective, or legal, theory; the Abelardian, or subjective, or moral theory; and the Christus Victor, or classic, theory, the one reflected in Peter’s Gospel—the conciseness and clarity of which is of great value in its own right. On top of this, Mattison presents a new translation of the Gospel of Peter in plain English, as well as a Public Domain translation, both renderings of his own.
